The 2022 NCAA wrestling tournament is here, and the postseason is back in full force. After the canceled 2020 championships and limited attendance of the 2021 edition, 2022 should be a force in Detroit, Michigan, at Little Caesars Arena from March 17-19. Penn State, Michigan, Iowa, Arizona State and Missouri look like the top contenders for the team title, while others want to get a few All-Americans or even a national champion on the board to cap off the season.
There are dominant wrestlers coming back, such as Gable Steveson up top and Yianni Diakomihalis at 149 pounds. Don’t forget about David Carr of Iowa State. Some wrestlers are up in weight or even down in weight, such as Nick Suriano, a former national champion from Rutgers who is representing Michigan at 125 pounds this season.
Michigan topped Penn State in the team race at Big Tens, but it’ll be tough to duplicate when throwing in the rest of the nation’s top talent.
